Because the simulation is of a high speed device, we will modify the simulation properties.
- On the Simulation Player in the Final Time field, enter .5 s, which is sufficient to demonstrate the mechanism.
TipUse the tooltips to see the names of the fields on the Simulation Player.
NoteThe software automatically increases the value in the Images field proportionally to the change in the Final Time field. Press the Tab key to move the cursor out of the Final Time field and update the Images field.
- In the Images field, enter 200. Increasing the image count improves the results we will view in the Output Grapher.
- Click Run on the Simulation Player.
As the Motor component drives the bevel gear, the remaining parts in the kinematic chain respond.
Also, because we have not yet specified any frictional or damping forces, the mechanism is lossless. There is no friction between components, regardless of how long the simulation runs.
- If the simulation is still running, click Stop on the Simulation Player.
Before leaving the simulation run environment, we’ll take a look at the Output Grapher.
